Windows 7: Installed new SSD as secondary HD, getting error 0xc00000e9.

Installed new SSD as secondary HD, getting error 0xc00000e9.

I just installed a new Samsung SSD 850 EVO 500GB SSD as a third hard drive for my pc as additional space for games. The computer has been running well with a 120GB SSD as the primary boot drive and with a 1TB HDD for media storage.

The installation went well initially and the computer was able to run well. Suddenly the PC would freeze and crash. When restarting I encountered error 0xc00000e9 and repeatedly hitting enter would occasionally summon the Windows repair tool, but it would only appear randomly.

At my wit's end, I unplugged the new SSD from the motherboard's SATA 3Gb/s port, and the machine booted with zero problems.

I then turned off the PC and plugged it back in, and the PC started without any problems. I installed a game on the SSD and it worked well. At this point, I assumed that I got the installation right.

But no. I left the computer on when I left for some errands, and when I returned home, the computer was stuck on error 0xc00000e9 again, so I turned off the PC and unplugged the new SSD's SATA cable again, and the computer is working fine now.

One other thing I tried was to set the BIOS to ignore the new SSD, but that didn't help.

Has anyone here had a problem like this before? Is my new SSD a dud?

Your new ssd could be bad but I would try a different sata cable first.
Check all connections again and one more time.

Poor connections on the sata data cable and or the power cable can cause this problem.

Did you or did you not find a problem with the cable or connections?

What solved you problem?

I removed the SSD, detached the cables, and then reattached the cables. It hasn't had any problems so far today. Thanks again for the good idea.

I haven't run any of the programs that I have sitting on the SSD today, however, so it's possible that there is still a problem. But it seems to be behaving.

You could try to exchange the Sata cable with the HDD cable, only to discard this potential cause

My computer has been working fine for two days since I reattached the cables. Thanks for the help Layback Bear and Lonko.
